"According to...God"

Have a Fantastic 2022

“Lord;

GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING

according to your word.

-Psalm 119:169

Q: What kind of year 2022 will be, your answer would depend.

“According to” … who?

“According to” … what?


“Lord;

GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING

according to your word.”

-Psalm 119:169

FEELINGS FACTS (God’s)

^--------------- FAITH ---------------^

(We decide where we place our faith)


We will alternate what we put our faith in depending on if we are using our head or our heart to place our faith.


Are your decisions, thoughts, and expectations DRIVEN by:

FACTS from God’s Word?

or

FEELINGS from who knows where?


We don’t get to decide facts.

We don’t get to decide what feelings we feel.

We do get to decide what to do with the feelings when we feel them.


“Lord; GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING

according to your word

-Psalm 119:169

The importance of

“According to…”


According to God:

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church.”

-Ephesians 3:20-21

Jesus… asked, “Who do people say I am?”

28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

29 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do YOU say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

30 Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him. Jesus Predicts His Death

31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again.

32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

-Mark 8:27-33


Here are some quotes that sound like verse but aren't:


The happiest people don’t have everything…

They just make the best of everything they have.

The richest people are not the ones who have the most They are the ones who need the least.


According to God:

“… if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

-2 Corinthians 5:17


According to God:

“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his

compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your

faithfulness. I say to myself, ‘The LORD is my portion;

therefore I will wait for him.’”

-Lamentations 3:22-24


According to God:

He is a “… compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.

-Exodus 34:6


According to God:

He preserves us in a toxic world

“Turn my eyes away from worthless things; PRESERVE MY LIFE according to your word.”

-Psalm 119:37

According to God:

“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

-Philippians 4:13


According to God:

We are Forgiven

“Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good.”

-Psalm 25:7


“If you, LORD, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you. I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.”

-Psalm 130:3-5

According to God:

He does NOT keep a record of your sins

or remember them.

So why do you?


According to God:

“Now to him who is able to do IMMESURABLY MORE than all we ask or IMAGINE, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church.”

-Ephesians 3:20-21


“Above all else guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life”

-Proverbs 4:23

“…two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!”

28 When Jesus had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”

29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”;

30 and their sight was restored.

-Matthew 9:27-30


Our Prayer for 2022
